Engaging Government

A CRS guide for working for social change

Engaging Government, A CRS Guide for Working for Social Change is designed for program staff who may not consider themselves “experts” in governance or capacity strengthening of government yet who recognize the need or opportunity to engage with government partners to achieve program success. It provides a “primer” on how government works and was written for CRS and partner project and program managers in all development and humanitarian contexts. It also offers multiple resources and tools for developing successful approaches for influencing public policy, optimizing government institutional performance and increasing civic participation.

This guide is accompanied by the Engaging Government Case Studies Series, which share CRS' experience in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Colombia, Madagascar, Nigeria, and the Philippines (Mindanao).
